For Matchday 12 of Liga MX, Pumas must win when they receive Pachuca, who is fighting to enter the top 4.
For Pumas, the situation is very hot and if they don’t get a positive result this weekend, heads can start to roll.
Pachuca for its part alternates good with bad results and has not been able to be regular, so it hopes to have this match as a breaking point.
Sunday, March 19 at 1:00 pm ET at the Universitario Stadium
Where Can I Watch it?
Why Bet on Pumas?
The situation for Pumas is not good. With 5 losses in their last 6 games, the team from the Mexican capital is in 14th place with 11 points and the position of coach Rafael Puente is in danger. The board was considering firing him, however, they decided to give him a new lease on life this weekend. A negative result and it is most likely that he will leave and, taking advantage of the FIFA Date, they would have more time to look for his replacement.
At home, the Felinos have 3 winless games with 2 losses and 1 draw. They have conceded 22 goals, being only surpassed in this category by Mazatlán (27) and Santos (23). Sebastián Sosa, who arrived this semester as one of the great reinforcements, has not been able to be a security pledge in the team.
Up front, Juan Dinenno has responded with 7 goals and 1 assist, but his teammates have not accompanied him.
Why Bet on Pachuca?
Pachuca has been a rare team this tournament since it has shown a great level by beating América at the Azteca (0-3), but then it fails at home. They have achieved almost the same points at home (10) as away (9).
Last weekend they lost to Monterrey (1-2), the tournament leader, and with 19 points they are in sixth place, 2 points behind Chivas, fourth. That’s why they need to win this weekend, so they can stay in the fight for the top 4, who qualify directly for the playoffs.
With 22 goals they are one of the best attacks, being only surpassed by América (23), but they also receive many goals (16).
The Tuzos have gone 9 games without being able to beat Pumas at the Universitario stadium in Liga MX.
Final Betting Analysis: Pumas vs. Pachuca
A game that could be definitive for Pumas, since a defeat could leave them without a coach. They will face a team that goes out to play in the same way in any stadium, but that does not finish convincing and is a surprise box, however, we believe that the individual level of the Tuzos will prevail and they will be the winners.
